UFC on Fuel 6 Betting Odds

The UFC is going to be in Macau, China this Saturday at the Venetian Macao Resort & Hotel (This is on at 6am-PT / 9am-ET / 2pm-GMT Saturday) I expect a big turnout in Macau this weekend for the event, but we’re not here to talk about that. Let’s get into my predictions for UFC on Fuel TV 6 and where you can find the best betting odds online this week leading up to the big main card that will feature six fights.

UFC on Fuel TV 6 Main Card Picks

  • Rich Franklin -306 (Pinnacle) vs. Cung Le +269 (Pinnacle)

In the main event on Saturday, Rich Franklin (29-6-1) will be in the cage against Cung Le (8-2). Franklin won his last fight against Wanderlei and Le’s last lost was against Wanderlei, but I still like the underdog here. I think the odds are too long on Le, but I’m worried about Franklin’s reach advantage. Le has a small edge in the stand-up game and takedown department though.

  • Thiago Silva -325 (BetDSI) vs. Stanislav Nedkov +300 (5Dimes)

Thiago Silva (14-3) takes on undefeated Stanislav Nedkov (12-0) in the co-main event. Nedkov dominated his UFC debut and won in the 1st round by TKO whereas Silva has been struggling immensely his last few fights. Silva is 0-2-1 in his L3 fights, but the level of competition that he has fought is much higher than Nedkov. I expect a close fight with plenty of strikes and I bet on Nedkov.

  • Dong Hyun Kim -220 (BetDSI) vs. Paulo Thiago +221 (Pinnacle)

It’s hard to bet against the favourite Dong Hyun Kim (15-2-1) this weekend against Paulo Thiago (14-4). Thiago has lost 3 of his L4 fights in the cage with his lone win coming over David Mitchell. This is a huge mismatch and if Kim can’t pick up a win this week in Macau, China than he’s in trouble. He lost his last fight to Maia by TKO due to an early rib injury, but he should bounce back.

  • Mac Danzig -225 (BetDSI) vs. Takanori Gomi +215 (BetOnline)

This fight should be very close and I’m not going to be betting on it. Mac Danzig (21-9-1) won his last fight, but he has been on a very inconsistent run lately in the UFC. Takanori Gomi (33-8) won his last fight, but has been inconsistent as well. Both fighters match-up well against each other and the value definitely sides with the underdog although it’s hard to bet on Gomi right now.

  • Jon Tuck -200 (Bodog) vs. Tiequan Zhang +200 (5Dimes)

Tiequan Zhang (15-3) hasn’t live up to expectations in the UFC and this could be his last fight with the promotion. He’s only 1-2 in the UFC and has lost his L2 fights. Jon Tuck (6-0) is from Guam and will be making his UFC debut. I haven’t seen Tuck fight, but I think he’ll win based on what I’ve been reading this week although it’ll be a no bet for me at -200 odds.

  • Takeya Mizugaki -340 (Bodog) vs. Jeff Hougland +300 (5Dimes)

Takeya Mizugaki (15-7-2) should be able to beat Jeff Hougland (10-5) this weekend in China. Mizugaki has a small reach edge and he should also have the edge in takedowns due to his takedown accuracy. Hougland has a small edge in the stand-up game, but the Japanese fighter should be able to keep a small distance from Hougland and pick him apart before working in takedowns.
